Alethes Sophia

Population7.927 billion



The Xenia of Alethes Sophia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Philosopher-King with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.927 billion Alethes Sophians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alethes Sophian economy, worth 708 trillion idEas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 89,368 idEas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, parents dread their examinations more than their children, Philosopher-King can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alethes Sophia's national animal is the Hume-an, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alethes Sophia is ranked 10,252nd in the world and 1st in Lethe for Most Secular, with 93.84 Atheism Rate.
